Timeshift: Bread - A Loaf Affair

About this programme

Examining the evolution of the loaf in Britain and how the bread that people consumed in the past had a lot to say about their social status. From the time when white bread was exclusively for the rich, to the moment when dietary experts recommended brown loaves for better health, this documentary explains how habits in buying and eating bread have changed. Tom Baker narrates.
